Qun Safety warnings 



IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT THESE OPERATING 
INSTRUCTIONS BE THOROUGHLY STUDIED 
BEFORE USING THIS FIREARM TO ASSURE 
PROPER AND SAFE GUN HANDLING. FAILURE 
TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS OR FAILURE 
TO OBEY ANY SAFETY WARNING MAY RESULT 
IN INJURY TO YOURSELF OR OTHERS, OR 
CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR GUN. 

As a gun owner, you accept a set of demanding responsi- 
bilities. How seriously you take these responsibilities can 
be the difference between life and death. There is no 
excuse for careless or abusive handling of any firearm. 
At all times handle your shotgun and any other firearm 
with intense respect for its power and potential danger. 

PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE 
CAUTIONS, PROPER HANDLING PROCEDURES 
AND INSTRUCTIONS OUTLINED IN THIS BOOKLET 
BEFORE USING YOUR NEW FIREARM. 

1. Do not carry a loaded gun while walking, running, 
climbing a tree, crossing a fence or anywhere you might 
slip or fall, drop the gun or otherwise bump or jar the gun. 
A gun that is dropped, bumped, or jarred with a chambered 
round might accidentally discharge even with the safety on, 
causing serious injury to you or someone else. When a 



round is chambered keep the safety on until you are ready 
to shoot. 

2. Do not rely on the safety to prevent accidental discharge. 
Many safeties merely block the trigger and prevent firing 
by pulling the trigger. The safety may not prevent an 
accidental discharge due to dropping, jarring, or bumping 

a gun. 

3. Use only ammunition for which the gun is chambered 
as indicated on the barrel, to prevent excessive pressure 
and possible serious personal injury. 

4. Incorrectly reloaded ammunition can cause serious 
personal injury and damage to the firearm due to excessive 
pressure. Reload only after proper instruction and in strict 
compliance with instruction and data contained in 
current reloading manuals. 

5. Never point a gun at anything you do not intend to shoot. 
Always keep it pointed in a safe direction in case of 
accidental discharge. 

6. Always check to ensure that the barrel is free of 
obstructions before loading and using the gun. If you 
experience light recoil or off sound, check the barrel 
for obstruction. 

7. Before firing, clean any grease or oil out of barrel with 
cleaning rod and patch. Grease or heavy accumulation of 
oil can cause excessive pressure and result in serious 
personal injury. 



^> 



^> 



02-018_9410_Ownersmanual 8/14/02 11:23 AM Page 6 



8. Keep barrel, chamber and action free of rust. Rust in 
the barrel and chamber can cause excessive pressures 
resulting in serious injury. A rusted, pitted or eroded 
barrel should be replaced. 

9. Use hearing protection to prevent ear damage from 
repeated exposure to gunfire. 

10. Always use proper shooting glasses to prevent eye 
injury from flying particles. 

11. Never carry a loaded gun in a motor vehicle or carry 
one into a dwelling. Always carefully unload the gun 
before entering a motor vehicle, a dwelling or an area 
such as a camp. Always point a gun in a safe direction 
while loading or unloading to prevent serious injury in 
case of an accidental discharge. Never load in the house 
or in your vehicle. 

12. Never shoot at a hard, flat surface or at the surface of 
water to avoid a ricochet and possible serious personal 
injury to yourself or a bystander. 

13. Store guns in a clean dry place out of reach of children 
and separated from stored ammunition. 



14- Never alter any parts of your gun. Any alterations or 
adjustments that may become necessary to the operating 
mechanism should be performed by a qualified gunsmith. 

15. Hunting from elevated surfaces such as tree stands is 
dangerous. Doing so may increase the risk of handling any 
firearm. Always make certain that the stand being used is 
safe, sturdy and stable. Always make certain your firearm 
is unloaded when it is being taken up and down from the 
stand. Always make certain that your firearm is not 
dropped from the stand or dropped while it is being taken 
up or down from the stand. 

16. Discharging firearms in poorly ventilated areas, cleaning 
firearms, or handling ammunition may result in exposure to 
lead and other substances known to cause birth defects, 
reproductive harm and other serious physical injury. Have 
adequate ventilation at all times. Wash hands thoroughly 
after exposure.

Qeneral Description 



Congratulations on your purchase of a Winchester 
Model 9410 shotgun — certainly one of the most unique 
and fun-to-shoot guns ever. The original Winchester 
Model 94 design is famous for fast handling and natural 
pointability. No wonder it lends itself so well to a 
chambering in .410 bore with a smoothbore, unrifled 
barrel. Whether you are after squirrels, rabbits, upland 
birds, rodents or even bigger varmints or game (using 
slugs) the Model 9410 will prove to be as effective as it is 
enjoyable. The Model 9410 can also be an inventive way 
to boost the fun of clay target shooting. 

This manual covers all current versions of the Model 9410 
(the first Winchester Model 94 chambered for .410 shot- 
gun shells). You get all the great features that have made 
the Model 94 design famous for over a century. Plus other 
advantages like: 

• Advanced rebounding hammer, hammer block and 
cross bolt hammer stop. 

• Positive angle ejection (ejection out the side, to the 
right, for better ejection when using a scope). 

• A special extractor/ejector design offers positive, 
controlled ejection with shotshells. 

As you examine your new Model 9410 you will observe 
that it possesses the genius of the original Model 94 design 



— the most famous of all lever action rifles. No gun better 
represents the Winchester legacy than the Model 94 rifle. 
Just like the original Model 94 rifles of the past, you'll 
appreciate the beautiful craftsmanship and superb function 
of the your Model 9410. 

With a few minor exceptions, the action is identical to 
the way the original rifles were made in 1894. Yet you'll 
find that today's manufacturing equipment and technology 
make it possible to produce this variation with more 
precision, closer metal-to-wood fits and tighter overall 
tolerances than possible in earlier times. We're sure that 
the greatest Winchester gunmakers of the past would be 
very proud of today's Model 9410 shotgun. 

Your new Model 9410 features our highly functional manual 
hammer stop built into the receiver, as well as our 
rebounding hammer system. This shotgun also contains an 
automatic hammer stop which blocks the hammer from 
striking the firing pin until the trigger is pulled. These 
advanced features move this traditional design to a new 
level of convenience and safety. All features are explained 
in detail later in this manual. 

TERMINOLOGY AND DESCRIPTIONS 

Descriptions in this manual generally refer to the gun in 
the horizontal position. That is, in the normal firing 
position. For example, the muzzle is forward or front; the

MODEL 9410 FEATURES 

Model 9410 Traditional shown, other 
models differ slightly. 



All models are drilled and tapped for scope mounts. With a scope 
and the proper rifled slug your Model 9410 can be effective for 
larger varmints — with better results at extended ranges. 



The manual hammer stop with 
rebounding hammer gives you an 
extra margin of safety. 



The stock is profiled for 
fast handling and classic 
good looks. 




Metal-to-metal fits show a high level 
of precision which you can feel in the 
smooth function of the action. 



Today's Model 9410 benefits from improvements in the entire line of firearms based on the Model 94 design. You'll 
see it in its overall fit and finish, the level of precision and the quality of the materials. The 9410 offers all the han- 
dling advantages of the original Model 94 design in a shotgun that is ideal for clay target practice, general training 
and a variety of hunting situations.

FIGURE 1D 



The ultra-strong breech block design has 
stood the test of time and is a main reason 
for the new Model 9410's slug shooting 
accuracy. 



The handling characteristics of the Model 9410 make it ideal for hunting small 
game in heavy brush or for use on varmints where there may be very little time to 
get off a shot at fast moving pests. 



Every Model 9410 comes with open sights. Most 
will feature a traditional drift-windage and elevation 
adjustable rear sight and ramp style front sight. 
Some feature fiber optic front sights. 




^ 



The Model 9410 features a specially designed ejector/extractor 
system that does not eject the shell until the lever is worked fully 
forward. This gives more reliable ejection with the numerous factory 
.410 bore shells on the market. The angle ejection receiver 
configuration found on the 9410 lets you utilize a scope as well — 
sending empties to the right, under the scope. 



The Model 9410 is chambered in 
.410 bore. This is a versatile 
"gauge" that offers the versatility 
of numerous loadings: birdshot 
field loads, Foster-type slugs and 
clay target loads. 



The cold-forged chrome 
molybdenum steel barrel 
is of the same material 
employed on our 
famous Model 94 
and Model 70 rifles. 



The Model 9410 has a level of responsiveness, fast handling, follow-up 
shot quickness and total reliability that makes it one of today's 
most enjoyable small gauge shotguns.

• Magazine capacity: The Model 9410 Traditional will 
hold Nine (9) shells maximum with most brands/styles of 
factory loads (may be one less with some brands/styles). 
Total capacity can be ten (10) if the chamber is loaded 
first, before loading the magazine. 

The Model 9410 Packer will hold Five (5) shells maxi- 
mum with most brands/styles of factory loads. Total 
capacity can be six (6) if the chamber is loaded first, 
before loading the magazine. 

Winchester ammunition is always an excellent choice for 
your new Winchester Model 9410 shotgun, delivering the 
unmatched performance and dependability you want. 

MAKE SURE YOU USE ONLY THE EXACT 
AMMUNITION/GAUGE AS LISTED ON THE 
LEFT SIDE OF THE BARREL. IMPORTANT: 
USE ONLY AMMUNITION SUITABLE FOR 
USE IN A .410 BORE SHOTGUN WITH A 
TUBULAR MAGAZINE. 

Use only star crimped or roll crimped shells. Because the 
Model 9410 uses a tubular magazine, never use shells with 
protruding, pointed or conical point slugs. Never use a 
shell which has a slug protruding beyond the crimp. 
Failure to follow these instructions may result in injury to 
yourself or others, or cause damage to your gun. 

NEVER LOAD OR SHOOT ANY CENTERFIRE 
RIFLE AMMUNITION IN YOUR MODEL 9410 



SHOTGUN. SERIOUS INJURY TO YOURSELF 
AND OTHERS MAY RESULT. U.S. REPEATING 
ARMS COMPANY, INC., CAN ASSUME NO 
RESPONSIBILITY FOR INCIDENTS WHICH 
OCCUR THROUGH THE USE OF SHOTGUN 
SHELLS OF NONSTANDARD DIMENSION OR 
THOSE THAT WHEN SHOT, DEVELOP 
PRESSURES IN EXCESS OF INDUSTRY 
STANDARDS ESTABLISHED BY THE SPORTING 
ARMS AND AMMUNITION MANUFACTURERS' 
INSTITUTE (SAAMI). 

DISCHARGING FIREARMS IN POORLY 
VENTILATED AREAS, CLEANING FIREARMS, 
OR HANDLING AMMUNITION MAY RESULT IN 
EXPOSURE TO LEAD AND OTHER SUBSTANCES 
KNOWN TO CAUSE BIRTH DEFECTS, 
REPRODUCTIVE HARM AND OTHER SERIOUS 
PHYSICAL INJURY. HAVE ADEQUATE 
VENTILATION AT ALL TIMES. WASH HANDS 
THOROUGHLY AFTER EXPOSURE. 

Incorrectly reloaded ammunition can cause serious 
personal injury and damage to the firearm due to excessive 
pressure. Reload only after proper instruction and in strict 
compliance with instructions and data contained in 
current reloading manuals.

OlLINQ THE ACTION 



Initial Cleaning; 



Some metal parts of your new Model 9410 have been 
coated at the factory with a rust preventative compound. 
Before using your Model 9410, clean the anti-rust com- 
pound from the inside of the barrel, receiver, shell feed 
mechanism and the action/chamber areas. A high quality, 
light gun oil should be used to remove this compound and 
to give your new gun its first lubrication. Clean the barrel 
using a cleaning rod and patch as explained under 
"Cleaning and Maintenance Suggestions" found later in 
this manual. First lubrication suggestions are outlined below. 

If your new Model 9410 is for collector's purposes only, it 
is permissible to leave the rust preventative compound in 
place and keep your Model 9410 in its box for maximum 
protection during long term storage. 



Before the first firing of your Model 9410 you should first 
wipe the mechanism completely clean, clean the bore and 
apply a few drops of quality oil on the following surfaces 
(Figure 2): 

• Along the breech bolt surface. 

• On each side of the vertical locking lug on the top 
and bottom. 

• Along the breech bolt rail surfaces. 

Avoid applying too much oil. Only a light film is necessary. 
Cleaning and Maintenance Suggestions should be followed 
before each oiling. 

Operation of the hammer 

The Model 9410's Rebounding Hammer is a safety feature 
designed to protect the firing pin from being struck by the 
hammer when the trigger is not being pulled. After firing 
your shotgun the hammer immediately moves to the 
rebound position. From this position, under normal 
conditions, the hammer is prevented from moving forward 
and striking the firing pin. The rebound position and the 
manual hammer stop are intended to work together to 
provide protection against unintentional or accidental firing.

Rebound position 
of hammer 




HAMMER POSITIONS — 

The rebounding hammer on your Model 9410 has two 
positions as follows: 

1. Rebound or "safety" position. This position 
(Figure 3) takes the place of the dropped and half-cocked 
positions found on earlier, original Model 94 rifle models. 
The rebounding feature of the hammer essentially elimi- 
nates the dropped position. The hammer only travels to 
the dropped position momentarily after the trigger has 



been pulled with the hammer cocked. The hammer then 
automatically moves to the rebound position. 

THE REBOUND POSITION IS CONSIDERED 
THE "SAFETY" POSITION. IT IS THE RECOM- 
MENDED POSITION OF THE HAMMER AT ALL 
TIMES AND SHOULD BE IN THAT POSITION 
EXCEPT (1) WHEN FIRING IS IMMINENT (2) OR 
IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE ACTION HAS 
BEEN CYCLED. 

2. Cocked position. This is the position that the hammer 
is moved to when firing is imminent (Figure 4). It is also 
the position the hammer moves to when the action is 
cycled using the finger lever. 

WHEN THE HAMMER IS IN THE COCKED 
POSITION THE HAMMER STOP SHOULD BE IN 
THE "ON" POSITION UNLESS FIRING IS IMMINENT. 

MANUAL HAMMER STOP — 

The manual hammer stop is a modern feature built into the 
action of your Model 9410 to provide an additional level of 
safety when it is in the "on" position. 

"On" Position. When the hammer stop is pushed all the 
way to the right it is in the on position (Figure 5-A). In this 
position it blocks the hammer from striking the firing pin. 



^> 



14 



^> 



02-018_9410_Ownersmanual 8/14/02 11:23 AM Page 15, 




THIS IS THE RECOMMENDED POSITION OF 
THE HAMMER FOR ALL TIMES EXCEPT WHEN 
FIRING IS IMMINENT. 

"Off" Position. When the hammer stop is pushed all the 
way to the left it is in the "off position (Figure 5-B). 
This is the position of the hammer stop when firing is 
imminent. 

To place the hammer stop in the "on" position: 

1. First, POINT YOUR SHOTGUN IN A SAFE 
DIRECTION, THEN PLACE THE MANUAL 
HAMMER STOP IN THE "ON" POSITION 

by pushing it from left to right with your thumb or finger 
(the thumb works well for right handed shooters) until 
the red "warning" ring disappears (Figure 5-A). 

2. When the red ring is visible on the left side of the manual 
hammer stop, it is in the "off position (Figure 5-B). It is 
placed in the "off position by pushing the stop with your 









•I

finger fully to the left until the red ring is showing. The 
manual hammer stop can be actuated with the hammer in 
the rebound or cocked position. 

LOWERING THE HAMMER 

At any time the hammer can be cocked either manually 
or by cycling the finger lever fully. Unless shooting is 
imminent it is important to move the hammer immediately 
to the rebound position from the cocked position. 
To do this: 

1. Make sure the barrel is pointed in a safe direction and 
that the hammer stop is in the "on" position. 

2. Get a stable grip on your shotgun with your hand in 
shooting position. With slight upward pressure from your 
fingers push the finger lever upward against the stock (this 
releases the trigger stop as explained later). Place your

^> 



02-018_9410_Ownersmanual 8/14/02 11:23 AM Page 16, 




thumb on the hammer and firmly hold the hammer back 
slightly with your thumb (Figure 6-A). 

3. While holding the hammer back apply just enough 
pressure on the trigger and finger lever to release the hammer 
from the full-cock position. Immediately remove your finger 
from the trigger and slowly and carefully allow the hammer 
to lower into the rebound position (Figure 6-B). 

Triqger Stop 

It is important that the breech be fully closed before your 
shotgun is fired. To help assure that this is always the case, 
your Model 9410 has a trigger stop mechanism. To fire 
your shotgun it is necessary for the finger lever to depress 
the trigger stop (Figure 7). The trigger stop is not a safety. 
It is simply an interlock to assure that the breech is fully 
closed before a shell can be discharged. Never rely on the 
trigger stop to prevent accidental discharge. 




Remove your finger 
from the trigger and 
lower the hammer to 
the rebound position 
Be extremely careful! 



When wearing gloves, a portion of the glove may get 
between the lever and the lower tang preventing the lever 
from depressing the trigger stop — making it necessary to 
squeeze upward on the finger lever. 

REMEMBER, NEVER RELY TOTALLY ON YOUR 
FIREARM'S MECHANICAL "SAFETY" DEVICES. 

As is true with other firearms, when the safety mechanism 
on this shotgun is engaged, it is designed to prevent accidental 
discharge. However, this mechanism will not necessarily 
prevent the accidental discharge of this firearm as a result 
of jarring or abuse such as occurs when a firearm is dropped. 

ALWAYS ASSUME THAT YOUR GUN CAN BE 
FIRED AT ANY TIME, EVEN WITH ALL SAFETY 
MECHANISMS ENGAGED. 



16 



^> 



02-018_9410_Ownersmanual 8/14/02 11:23 AM Page 17. 




Whenever you are not actually firing your shotgun always 
be certain that your gun is pointed in a safe direction. 
Continually be aware of the position of the manual hammer 
stop on your shotgun. Check it both manually and visually 
to avoid any chance of accidental discharge. Always keep 
the manual hammer stop in the "on" position unless you 
are actually firing the shotgun. It is a good idea to keep 
the action open (with the finger lever down) at all times 
other than when you are in the field and shooting is 
imminent. 

IMPORTANT: IT IS ALWAYS RECOMMENDED 
THAT THE ACTION BE KEPT OPEN AT ALL 
TIMES WHEN YOUR SHOTGUN IS LAYING ON 
ANY BENCH OR TABLE AT A SHOOTING 
RANGE OR OTHER FACILITY. ALWAYS KEEP 
THE MUZZLE OF YOUR SHOTGUN POINTED IN A 



SAFE DIRECTION. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE 
ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN 
INJURY OR DEATH TO YOURSELF OR OTHERS. 

ASSEMBLY / DISASSEMBLY 

Your Model 9410 comes fully assembled in the box. No 
assembly to the gun itself is required. No disassembly is 
required for normal maintenance. 

If your Model 9410 requires disassembly for any reason 
(such as requiring extra cleaning after being dropped in 
water) it should be performed by a competent gunsmith, 
by one of our Authorized Repair Centers, or by our 
service facility. 

INSTALLING A SCOPE 

Rifled slugs (Foster-type) in .410 bore can offer excellent 
accuracy when used in your new shotgun. Consequently, 
in some situations you may want the advantage of a scope 
or dot type sight. Scope mounts are available separately. 

General instructions for installing scope mounts are 
outlined below. Most systems will be similar to the ones 
explained here. Be sure to also follow the instructions 
provided with your mounts. 

1. Remove the plug screws and de-grease the holes in the 
top of the receiver. 



^> 



17 



^> 



02-018_9410_Ownersmanual 8/14/02 11:23 AM Page IE 



2. Each mount comes in two pieces. Remove the mount 
caps (top parts) and fasten the mounts (bottom parts) to 
the top of the receiver. (You may want to apply a removable 
locking compound to each screw to assure they stay 
secure under the effect of recoil). The mount with two 
holes parallel to the receiver is mounted on the front of 
the receiver. The mount with holes side by side (perpen- 
dicular to the receiver) mounts at the back. 

3. Once the mounts are in place, lay the scope inside the 
stirrups, replace the caps and lightly tighten the cap screws. 

4. Before fully tightening the cap screws adjust the scope 
forward or backward to achieve the proper eye relief (eye 
relief is the distance your eye must be from the rear lens of 
the scope to bring the entire field of view into focus). 
Proper eye relief is extremely important even with .410 
shells. To prevent injury resulting from the rim of a scope 
hitting your forehead, follow all instructions concerning 
eye relief provided with your scope. 

5. When the proper eye relief is found, tighten the cap 
screws in a rotating, crossing pattern. Do not over tighten 
so as to strip the screws or damage the scope tube. 

6. Now carefully follow the instructions on sighting in 
provided with your scope. 

Important: If you are using a scope, you may consider 
using a hammer extension. Refer to the instructions on 
mounting a hammer extension later in this manual. 



General Operation 



ALWAYS KEEP THE MUZZLE POINTED IN A 
SAFE DIRECTION. 

Prior to using live ammunition, it is essential that you 
familiarize yourself thoroughly with these operating 
instructions. Get accustomed to the feel of your new gun. 

• Know the forces required to operate the action 

• Know what forces are required to pull the trigger 

• ABOVE ALL, KNOW HOW TO PLACE THE 
HAMMER INTO THE SAFETY (REBOUND) 
POSITION AND THE MANUAL HAMMER 
STOP INTO THE "ON" POSITION. 

Throughout this manual the "action" refers to the mechanism 
of a firearm which loads and secures the shell in the 
chamber. If the action resists closing, do not force it. 
Small pieces of grit or other obstructions can make it 
difficult to close the action. Make sure all surfaces are 
clean if any unusual resistance is felt. However, remember 
that this is a finely fitted action purposely made with tight 
fitting tolerances. This assures your gun of good part-to- 
part fit for many years to come and is the sign of a finely 
crafted firearm.

LOADINQ PROCEDURES 



USE THE CORRECT AMMUNITION AS INDICATED 
BY THE INSCRIPTION ON THE BARREL. AS 
EXPLAINED PREVIOUSLY, BEFORE LOADING 
YOUR SHOTGUN MAKE SURE ALL GREASE 
AND OIL HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE 
BARREL AND CHAMBER, AND THERE ARE 
NO OBSTRUCTIONS IN THE BARREL OR 
ACTION AREAS. 

LOADING THE CHAMBER — 

The chamber may be loaded two ways: 

( 1 ) Load the chamber by placing a shell directly into the 
chamber through the opened action (Figure 8), or 

(2) load the chamber by transferring a shell that was 
previously loaded into the magazine (Figure 9) to the 
chamber by operating the finger lever. 

When loading the chamber directly, the magazine should 
be empty. You must be careful to insert the end of the 
shell partially into the chamber before operating the finger 
lever to close the action. If a shell does not chamber 
completely when you close the action you should eject it 
and inspect it. The problem may be caused by the crimp 
and you can simply try again to chamber it. Be sure to 
check the shell to make sure it is a 2Vl" shell and not a 3" 




shell. If it is a 3" shell do not use it or try to chamber it in 
your Model 9410. Store it away separately from your gun. 

IN EITHER CASE, ALWAYS FIRST PLACE THE 
MANUAL HAMMER STOP IN THE "ON" POSITION, 
AND THEN PLACE THE HAMMER INTO THE 
SAFETY (REBOUND), POSITION UPON CLOSING 
THE ACTION. 

LOADINQ THE MAGAZINE — 

The magazine is loaded through the port on the right side 
of the receiver. 

1. With the action closed and the manual hammer stop in 
the "on" position and the hammer in the safety (rebound)

position, press the spring cover inward with the crimp 
end of the first shell until the entire shell has entered the 
loading port (Figure 10). 

2. Then, insert the next shell in the same manner, pushing 
down on the cover fully with the shell, then pushing the 
preceding shell into the magazine. 

3. Repeat this procedure with each shell, pushing the last 
shell past the end of the spring cover, allowing the cover to 
snap closed (Figure 11). Do not exceed the 
recommended capacity of the magazine. With practice, the 
shell can be inserted until only the rim is exposed and the 
spring cover is depressed to aid in loading the next shell. 

If a shell is loaded manually into the chamber before you 
begin loading shells into the magazine, you will increase 



total shell capacity by one; in the case of the Model 9410 
Traditional model, nine in the magazine and one in the 
chamber. If you open the action to load directly into the 
chamber with the magazine already loaded it may be difficult 
or impossible to close the action. You may need to 
remove the shell from the chamber manually to allow the 
shell on the carrier to move into position for chambering. 

BEFORE LOADING, ALWAYS MAKE SURE TO 
PLACE THE MANUAL HAMMER STOP IN THE 
"ON" POSITION, AND THE HAMMER INTO 
THE SAFETY (REBOUND), POSITION. 

CAUTION: ALWAYS MAKE SURE THE SHELLS 
ARE OF THE PROPER GAUGE AND LENGTH 
FOR YOUR MODEL 9410 SHOTGUN. CHECK

BARREL. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THIS 
INSTRUCTION CAN RESULT IN SEVERE DAMAGE 
TO YOUR GUN AND POSSIBLE SERIOUS 
INJURY TO YOURSELF OR OTHERS. 

UNLOADING PROCEDURES 

Fully unloading your shotgun for storage or in other 
appropriate situations is essential to safe gun handling. 

BEFORE UNLOADING, CHECK TO ASSURE 
THAT THE MANUAL HAMMER STOP IS IN 
THE "ON" POSITION (SAFE) BY PUSHING IT 
FROM LEFT TO RIGHT. KEEP YOUR FINGER 
AWAY FROM THE TRIGGER WHEN CYCLING 
THE ACTION. 



1 . With the gun pointed in a safe direction and your finger 
off the trigger, swing the finger lever downward fully. This 
will extract any shell from the chamber and eject it. 
Capture (or pick up) the shell and return the finger lever 
fully upward. 

2. Proceed to operate the finger lever in the same manner 
transferring all the remaining cartridges from the magazine 
to the chamber and then eject them out. 

THROUGHOUT THE UNLOADING PROCESS 
MAKE SURE THAT THE MANUAL HAMMER 
STOP STAYS IN THE "ON" POSITION AND 
THAT YOU KEEP YOUR FINGER AWAY FROM 
THE TRIGGER AT ALL TIMES. 

When shells no longer eject when you cycle the action, 
further assure that no shells remain by opening the action 
and visually checking the chamber and feed/magazine 
mechanism to be sure no shells remain (Figure 12). 

IMPORTANT: ALWAYS VISUALLY NOTE, 
BY LOOKING THROUGH THE TOP OF THE 
OPEN RECEIVER, THAT THE MAGAZINE 
FOLLOWER IS SHOWING— AND NOT A SHELL 
BASE. ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK THAT NO 
SHELLS REMAIN.

mechanisms for any shells 




After the last live round is moved out of the magazine 
and ejected, immediately lower the hammer to the safe 
(rebound) position as explained previously. 

REMOVINQ A3" SHELL FROM THE MAGAZINE — 

The Model 9410 is designed for 2Vf shells only. If you 
inadvertently load a 3" shell into the magazine it takes a 
special procedure to clear it. You will probably first notice 
that you have inadvertently loaded a 3" shell in the magazine 
when you lower the finger lever to move a new shell to the 
chamber and the shell does not move up on the carrier. A 
close inspection will reveal that the crimp end of the shell 
cannot clear the magazine tube. To remove the shell from 
the action follow these steps: 



1 . Close the action, returning the shell back into the magazine 
tube. You may have to work the lever a bit to move the 
crimp end of the shell past the cartridge stop if it hangs up 
slightly. Pushing down on the crimp end of the shell with 
your finger while closing the action with your other hand 
may also release it and allow the shell to return back into 
the magazine tube. Be careful not to pinch your finger. 

2. With the action closed use a finger of your free hand to 
push fully in on the spring cover of the loading port and 
hold it there (Figure 13). 

3. While holding the cover in, open the action by pulling 
down and continuing forward on the finger lever until the 
action is open. CONTINUE TO HOLD THE SPRING 
COVER IN with your finger. 

4. Remove your other hand from the finger lever and use 
your finger or the end of a small screwdriver to push (gently 
pry) the rim of the shell to the right until it rides up on the 
spring cover slightly (Figure 14). 

5. Use your finger or a small screwdriver to gently encourage 
the shell rearward, out of the loading port until you can 
grasp it with your fingers and pull it free. 

This is not a procedure you want to do often — so please be 
very careful not to mix 2Vl" and 3" shells in your pockets. 
The Model 9410 is designed solely for 2Vz" shells.

In the Case of a Misfire 



Only rarely will modern factory ammunition experience a 
misfire. If this ever happens to you when shooting your 
Model 9410 please follow these instructions carefully. 

CAUTION: IN CASE OF MISFIRE, KEEP THE 
BARREL POINTED IN A SAFE DIRECTION, 
PLACE THE MANUAL HAMMER STOP IN THE 
"ON" POSITION AND CAREFULLY OPEN 
ACTION WHILE AVOIDING DIRECT EXPOSURE 
TO THE BREECH BY YOURSELF AND OTHERS. 

Carefully inspect the ejected shell. If the primer is indented, 
the shell should be disposed of in a manner that would 
prevent accidental injury to you or others. If there is no 
indentation, your gun may have malfunctioned and 
should be serviced by a qualified gunsmith. If the gun is

under warranty, it must be serviced by a U.S. Repeating 
Arms Company, Authorized Repair Center (ARC). 

IMPORTANT: If your Model 9410 has not fired when 
the trigger is pulled, also be sure to check your gun's 
manual hammer stop to make sure it was not left 
inadvertently in the "on safe" position. 

Firing procedures 

important: when you are preparing to 
shoot, it is always essential that you 
be totally sure of your target. always 
be aware of all objects behind your 
target. know the exact location of 
persons with you and any others in 
your vicinity. pick your target wisely 
and carefully.

the trigger return to the fully forward position. 

SPECIAL NOTE ON TRIGGER PULL: When pulling 
the trigger an initial "take-up" section can be felt. This 
longer, initial pull is an added safety feature of your Model 
9410. It serves to drop an internal hammer block that is

1. Swing the finger lever fully down extracting and ejecting 
the fired shell case from the chamber. 

2. Close the action by returning the finger lever upward. 
The closing of the action will transfer a new shell from 
the magazine to the chamber, leaving the hammer in a 
cocked "ready to fire" position.

WHEN FIRING IS COMPLETED OR WHEN 
SHOOTING IS NO LONGER IMMINENT, 
IMMEDIATELY RETURN THE MANUAL 
HAMMER STOP TO THE "ON" (SAFE) 
POSITION AND RETURN THE HAMMER 
TO THE REBOUND POSITION. 

IMPORTANT: UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES 
SHOULD YOU MOVE ON OR CONTINUE TO 
HUNT WITH YOUR HAMMER OR SAFETY IN 
THE FIRE POSITION. 



All Model 9410 shotguns are fitted with open sights. The 
style and adjustment system may vary between models 
and grades. 

The proper procedure is to shoot a group or pattern with 
the sights set as they come from the factory (intermediate 
position on both elevation and windage), and then make 
incremental adjustments to move the sight blade and 
blade holder to position the group on your target. The 
procedures below are for the type of open sights found on 
many current Model 9410 shotguns. 

BEFORE MAKING ANY SIGHT ADJUSTMENTS, 
MAKE SURE YOUR SHOTGUN IS FULLY 
UNLOADED AND THE MUZZLE IS POINTED IN 
A SAFE DIRECTION. PLACE THE HAMMER IN 
THE REBOUND POSITION AND THE MANUAL 
HAMMER STOP INTO THE "ON" POSITION. 

UP OR DOWN ELEVATION ADJUSTMENTS — 

Adjusting elevation on your Model 9410 requires you to 
lift up the rear notch blade holder on your shotgun's rear 
sight with your fingers and move the notched elevator 
either forward or backward (see Figure 18). To raise point 
of impact, use your fingers to lift up on the blade and slide 
the elevator rearward. Adjusting the sight to make your

FIGURE 19 




gun shoot lower is just the opposite - 
forward. Remember: 

• Move the blade and holder UP to shoot HIGHER. 

• Move the blade and holder DOWN to shoot LOWER. 

RIQHT OR LEFT WINDAQE ADJUSTMENTS — 

On most Model 9410 sights, the entire rear sight blade 
holder is dove-tailed in the rear sight base. To adjust for 
windage, gently move the rear sight blade to the right or 
left by tapping at the dove-tail using a wood or fiber 
dowel or hammer that will not mar the sight (Figure 19). 
If you tap to the right your gun will shoot more to the 
right. Moving the blade holder to the left is just as easily 
done. Note how much you adjust the sight as you sight-in 
your Model 9410. Remember: 



• Move the rear sight to the RIGHT to shoot farther to 
the RIGHT on the target. 

• Move the rear sight to the LEFT to shoot farther to the 
LEFT on the target. 

Care should be taken not to mar the finish, damage 
the attaching screws or bend sight components when 
adjustments are made. 

All sight adjustments are a matter of trial and error. 
Remember, it is usually necessary to reset your sights 
when you change type or even brand of ammunition. 



26 



^> 



02-018_9410_Ownersmanual 8/14/02 11:23 AM Page 27. 



SlQHT MAINTENANCE — 

Occasionally check your sights to make sure they have 
not been jarred or vibrated out of adjustment. This is 
especially important after extensive shooting or after 
hunting under rugged conditions. If so equipped, check 
the two screws holding the rear sight blade in place on 
the blade mount and carefully tighten if necessary. Check 
the screw holding the front sight base to the barrel. This 
screw can be accessed by gently removing the fiber optic 
pipe from the base. Tighten the screw and carefully 
re-install fiber optic pipe. Front and rear sight bases 
should always be tight on the barrel and dove-tails 
should be snug. 



SlQHT PICTURE — 

The correct sight picture for the sights on your 9410 
when shooting Foster-type slugs is with the front bead 
resting in the bottom of the sight blade (also called the 
apex of the shallow). The bead itself should rest directly 
under the point of impact (Figure 20). For example, if 
you were shooting a conventional target, the round, black 
bull's-eye would appear to rest on top of the front bead. 

When patterning with birdshot, the sights should be 
aligned with the center of the pattern. Some shooters 
may wish to position the pattern a few inches higher than 
the point of aim, depending on preference and shooting 
situation. The bird shot patterns you will experience 
with the Model 9410, at 25 yards, would generally be 
considered "full choke."

HAMMER EXTENSION 



Some Model 9410 rifles are supplied with a hammer 
extension. A hammer extension is useful when a scope is 
mounted. It extends to the side, making it convenient to 
cock and lower the hammer even with a low-mounted scope. 

The hammer extension can be used in either the right 
hand or left hand position. To install, coat the hammer 
extension threads with Loctite* thread locking compound. 
Position the round hollow edge to the left or right as 
preferred and fully tighten the hammer extension in the 
tapped hole in the hammer (Figure 21). (Right-handed 
shooters usually prefer mounting the extension to the 
right side.) 

WARNING: HAMMER EXTENSIONS CAN 
LOOSEN WITH USE. OCCASIONALLY CHECK 
TO MAKE SURE YOUR HAMMER EXTENSION 
IS STILL ON TIGHTLY. PROPER MOUNTING 
OF THE HAMMER EXTENSION IS IMPORTANT 
TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE. 

It is important to familiarize yourself thoroughly with the 
operation and use of the hammer extension and your 
firearm prior to using live ammunition.

Cleaning and Maintenance Suggestions 

The Model 9410 will function better and more reliably 
over a longer period of time if it is properly maintained 
and kept clean. 

BEFORE PERFORMING ANY CLEANING 
PROCEDURES, ALWAYS MAKE CERTAIN 
THERE ARE NO SHELLS IN THE CHAMBER, 
MAGAZINE OR ACTION/FEED AREAS. 

You should clean your Model 9410 after every day of 
shooting and more often if it becomes excessively dirty. 
A minimum cleaning includes wiping down the action 
and oiling key parts. Regular maintenance will also 
include cleaning the barrel. If you encounter a function 
problem (tight action when working the finger lever), be 
sure to give your gun a thorough cleaning to see if it 
solves the problem before seeking the services of one of 
our Authorized Repair Centers, our service facility or a 
competent gunsmith. 



To clean your firearm, follow the general outline that follows: 
CLEANINQ PROCEDURES — 

BE CERTAIN YOUR GUN'S CHAMBER AND 
MAGAZINE ARE UNLOADED. ALWAYS WEAR 
PROTECTIVE SAFETY GLASSES DURING ALL 
CLEANING PROCEDURES. KEEP AMMUNITION 
AWAY FROM THE CLEANING AREA. DO NOT 
TEST THE FUNCTION OF YOUR FIREARM 
WITH LIVE AMMUNITION. ALWAYS PLACE 
THE MANUAL HAMMER STOP IN THE "ON" 
(SAFE) POSITION BEFORE BEGINNING ANY 
CLEANING PROCEDURE. 

1. Use a cleaning rod with a tip and patch suitable for the 
bore diameter of your gun. Make sure the patch is large 
enough for a snug fit in the bore. 

Insert the rod and patch into the barrel at the muzzle 
end and run it back and forth several times. Use a crown 
protector if possible. Be careful not to strike the crown 
of the muzzle with the handle end of the rod. Damage to 
this area can affect the accuracy of your gun. 

2. Inspect the chamber and bore for brass, copper and 
powder fouling. A normal amount of powder residue can 
be expected and is not serious. It can usually be removed 
by repeating step one, using a patch saturated with solvent. 



^> 



32 



^> 



02-018_9410_Ownersmanual 8/14/02 11:23 AM Page 33, 



If or when fouling should become heavy, it can be 
removed with a brass bore brush. Dip or spray the brush 
with solvent and scrub the chamber and bore until the 
fouling is removed. To prevent brass bristles from break- 
ing off, the brush should be pushed completely through 
the bore before being withdrawn. If cast lead slugs are 
used a lead solvent may be used as well to fully clean the 
bore. Follow the instructions on all solvents and cleaners. 

3. After fouling has been removed the bore should be 
wiped dry. Then pass a slightly oiled patch through the 
bore, for preservation. A fine, light gun oil is recommended. 

4- Wipe all exposed metal surfaces of the receiver, forearm 
and barrel with a clean rag. Finger marks should be 
removed because they provide a place where moisture can 
accumulate. Any dried oil in the receiver area should also 
be removed. 

5. Then lightly oil your gun at the points described under 
"Oiling the Action" (page 13). The metal of the gun 
should receive a light film of oil any time the shotgun 
has been exposed to weather or handling. Remember, 
the polished, finely fitted surfaces of the receiver and 
action mechanisms must always have a thin film of oil. 
Make sure that the surfaces of the breech block, lever 
components and feed mechanism parts are especially 
clean and lightly oiled with a high quality gun oil. Do 
not use pure silicone or lanolin. 



6. INSPECT THE BARREL AND CHAMBER. TO 
MAKE CERTAIN THAT NO PATCHES HAVE 
BEEN INADVERTENTLY LEFT IN THEM. 

Remove any that remain. 

7. Wipe all wood surfaces. 

8. When transporting only, store your gun in a quality 
protective case to prevent scratches and dents. Store in a 
dry place to prevent corrosion. Store away from children. 

MAKE SURE YOUR GUN IS UNLOADED AND 
ALWAYS STORE AMMUNITION 
SEPARATELY. 

OTHER CLEANINQ SUQQESTIONS — 

• Never pour large quantities of oil into the receiver or 
other parts. It can drain down to the wood and soften 
it — and cause permanent damage and loosening of 
the stock. 

• After extended periods of heavy use, your gun should 
be taken to one of our Authorized Repair Centers or a 
qualified gunsmith to have the action disassembled for 
professional cleaning and lubrication. 

NEVER ATTEMPT TO TAKE YOUR MODEL 
9410 APART FURTHER THAN EXPLAINED IN 
THIS MANUAL.

inner mechanism assemblies. If further disassembly for 
service or cleaning is required, take your gun to a U. S. 
Repeating Arms Company Authorized Repair Center or a 
competent gunsmith as explained under "Service or Repair." 

Parts, Service, Repair and Questions 

If your Winchester rifle or shotgun should ever need 
service or repair; it is often best to utilize one of our 
Authorized Service Centers. In some cases it is appropriate 
to use the Winchester Service Center in Arnold, 
Missouri. A list of Authorized Service Centers was 
included with your new firearm. If you need a new listing 
call us. We can help you determine the best place to 
service your firearm. 

In order to avoid delays it is important to never send your 
gun directly to our facility without direct authorization 
from one of our service specialists. This avoids possible 
delays in obtaining service. Call us for details on how to 
receive service first, before sending your gun.
